Nvidia GeForce Now limited to 1080p on Smart TVs – Stadia supports 4K HDR

07 Jan 2022 | Rasmus Larsen |

LG and Samsung are the first Smart TV brands to offer Nvidia's GeForce Now app but game streaming quality will be limited compared to Nvidia's own Shield box, according to The Verge.

Nvidia confirmed that the limitation applies to both LG and Samsung Smart TVs including the upcoming 2022 models. GeForce Now will stream games in maximum 1080p SDR on Smart TVs. However, Nvidia is planning to lift game streaming quality in the second half of the year. - "The TVs use many different SOCs with different performance levels capable of decoding our streams at 60 FPS, so we’re focused on 1080p first," Nvidia cloud gaming boss Phil Eisler told The Verge. "We’ve rolled that out with LG first in December and with Samsung models in the first half of 2022, and will increase resolutions in the second half of 2022 as we continue to optimize for those decoding applications." Nvidia's own Shield TV box supports GeForce Now game streaming at 4K60 HDR, which requires HEVC decoding. LG and Samsung TVs have had support for 4K60 HEVC decoding for years so it is unclear what Nvidia is referring to.

Google Stadia meanwhile will offer 4K60 HDR game streaming on both LG and Samsung Smart TVs. It already works on compatible LG TVs. Stadia will be available on 2022 Samsung TVs this spring with the launch of the new line-up. Nvidia said at CES 2022 that it expects the total cloud gaming market to grow to 100 million subscribers by 2024. - Source: The Verge
